Cause Without a Rebel


Published 1965


16mm., B&W, Sound (from Chicago Film Archive's Peter Kuttner Collection)

A documentary exploring political apathy among white college students at Northwestern University during the civil rights movement. The film contrasts traditional college activities (football games, hanging out, attending classes) with political activism (marching, speeches by Martin Luther King, getting arrested and police brutality, and racist violence). The film uses time lapse, slow-motion, and still frames to both indict and activate disengaged youth.
